The Best Easy At-Home Workouts to Stay Fit

What if you don’t have a fully equipped home gym to get a quality workout? What if I told you that you could get your heart rate up while feeling more toned and flexible with easy at-home workouts?

These top easy at-home workouts are all designed to fit into your busy lifestyle and keep you safe at home, all while still breaking a sweat.

Total Body Easy At-Home Workouts

Blogilates

For over ten years, fitness guru Cassey Ho has been using her YouTube channel to bring workouts to your home. Blogilates is your one-stop-shop for guided and expert workout routines with a virtual personal trainer. A certified Pilates and fitness instructor, Cassey teaches you everything she knows on screen. Her upbeat attitude and verbal encouragements make the video classes feel personal, even though they’re prerecorded. Her videos feature herself on screen, demonstrating each exercise as she walks you through each step of the workout.

Most of her workouts center around bodyweight, so they don’t require any additional equipment other than a yoga mat for comfort. Try her challenge videos, full-body strength training, or cardio high-intensity interval training (HIIT) plans. Many include squats, muscle work, planks, and even dance-based moves. She truly has something for everyone at every fitness level! With hundreds of videos to choose from, you’ll surely find a workout that fits your lifestyle.

Chloe Ting

Chloe Ting is another popular account known for ab challenges that promise toned abs in two weeks. Although I can’t vouch for results that quickly, I will say that Chloe Ting’s workouts are great for targeting your abs. This two-week ab workout challenge is a short workout plan that feels manageable, even for fitness-newbies. She's designed this workout to target your abs and help you lose weight. The best part is that it's equipment-free and only 10 minutes long!

Chloe demonstrates and describes each exercise as she guides you through the workout. She also provides virtual encouragement throughout the two-week program. Chloe also offers full body and HIIT workouts on her channel for a variety of fitness levels. Depending on your fitness goals, you can incorporate them into a weight training or weight loss program or use them on their own.
